Comments: This thing is pretty tough, but fun overall. The feet around the last couple of moves are pretty small.

Comments: Lesser quality but still fun. My standards have always been low however.
I think the start is a bit harder than 11b, was kinda punchy.

Comments: The description is dead on. Weird, but fun finish finding the right holds.
Worthwhile if you need some shade.

Comments: This thing likely doesn't get done much, mediocre rock. It's not a give-away 12a. Kinda stiff I thought.

Comments: Troy, Bob and I freed this is the fall of 02 and Bob drilled the bomber, modern anchor. We wanted to name it Cabin Boy at first, but Troy doesn't like homo-erotic connotations in his route names apparently. Tree line seemed like an ok 2nd choice since, at the time, the tree was in perfect line with the crack and essentially hid the climb from anyone hiking up the North Fork Trail. The tree now sadly lies on the ground. Not sure when it fell.

Comments: Been up to Hungover Wall twice this summer, my last visit there was at least 10 years ago, maybe more. My impressions on going back after such a long break...this is a pretty sweet little crag. I had a great time both trips. The climbing is delicate, yet a bit powerful, and well, lots of fun. Get up there and have a look. It goes into the shade around 1pm.

Comments: The face plant could be avoided by not letting the climber clip the belay. The first bolts are somewhat up and out off the belay, so the belayer should only get lifted and not face planted if the climber falls. But you're right, normally it is best for the belayer to stay tight and into the rock and not 10ft out.

Comments: This route is not bad. It was cleaned pretty nicely by the FA team and thoughtfully bolted too. It is still cleaning up a little and could use more traffic. It's a bit harder than the shorter 12a to the left imo.

Comments: This route is good. Really good rock, except for maybe the first pitch, but after that it's all good. There is a 15ft section on P5 that is pretty baffling.
